Dear PCA Families,

It was nice to see so many of you at the Walking Rosary yesterday! Thank you to all the students who participated in this event and to Mrs. Begeman for organizing the day!

 

Please come cheer on our JV Boys' Basketball team in the semi-finals at San Jose today at 4:30 PM!

 

Report cards will be emailed out by the end of the day tomorrow.

 

It is Red Ribbon Week! Please see below for the events for the week.

 

Parents, please note, students are NOT allowed to share food (lunch or snacks) due to food allergies. This includes purchased lunches from our vendors; we cannot give your child's food to another student. Thank you for understanding!

There was a mistake on the original basketball schedules. Tonight's games are AWAY and not at home. We are sorry for any inconvenience. PLEASE NOTE: OUR VARSITY BOYS WILL BE IN THE QUARTER FINALS AT PCA ON WEDNESDAY AT 6:00 PM. We will have a PINK OUT for Breast Cancer Awareness. All PCA fans should come in PINK!

 

Parents, we are imploring you to follow the carline rules. It is getting very dangerous, and someone is going to get hurt. PLEASE pay attention to the carline, move as far forward as you can and stay off your cell phones! Also, please DO NOT attempt to make a left out of the lot. There is a NO LEFT TURN sign during the carline hours clearly posted as you leave the campus. Please go right and then turn around if you must in the Panera or Walgreens lot. PLEASE help us keep our families and students safe.

 

Attention, 8th grade Confirmation families, if you did not attend the Confirmation parent meeting yesterday, you MUST attend the one on Wednesday night at 7:15 PM. These meetings are scheduled and led by the Director of Religious Education at OLSS, Dr. Alex Groppe. Dates have been on the calendar since the summer. Parent attendance at one of the meetings is MANDATORY.

 

Next week is Red Ribbon Week. Please see below for the events for the week. If your child wants to enter the poster contest, posters are due on Thursday, October 19!

 

We hope you will join us for the Walking Rosary on Sunday, October 22 after the 11 AM Mass at OLSS!

As a reminder, if your child is late to school, you must walk him/her into the building and sign him/her in at the front desk. Please do not send late children in by themselves. Thank you!

 

Please note, if your child is absent from school and you ordered a hot lunch, we will put it in the refrigerator for you to pick up by the end of the day (or send home with a sibling). We cannot give the lunch to a sibling to consume at a different lunch period because we need to maintain it at a certain temperature in order to serve it according to the Department of Health. If the lunch is not picked up, we will have to discard it in the morning per Department of Health guidelines. Thank you for understanding!

The end of the 1st quarter (October 13th) is quickly approaching! Please be sure to check your child's grades in RenWeb (grades 3-8) and contact the teacher if you have any concerns. First quarter report cards will be emailed home on October 24.
